Moving More

  • To stay healthy it’s recommended you do at least 150 minutes of moderate activity every
    week. This can easily be broken down to five sessions of 30 minutes of aerobic
    activity such as cycling or fast walking
  • It’s also important do strength exercises on 2 days of the week that work all
    the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms)
  • A great way to start is to download the Couch to 5K app now. It has been designed to get
    you off the couch and running in just nine weeks. Grab your trainers and follow the stepby-
    step instructions
  • Being active is really good for your body, mind and health - and there are lots of easy
    ways you and your family can get moving
  • If you don’t do enough exercise, you increase your risk of getting heart disease and
    some types of cancer. Getting some exercise each day can also help prevent depression
    and dementia
  • It’s easy to move more and doing something is better than nothing. Start small and build
    up gradually
